Make a Gift
Making an earmarked contribution in support of Mathematics is a superb way to enhance the Department's tradition of excellence in research, education, and service. Your gift will make a tremendous difference in the lives of students and faculty, the broader campus community, and the profession.
Mathematics plays an ever more essential role in our global society. Mathematical theories and algorithms form the bedrock of modern science, engineering and technology, including computers and the internet, and are now indispensable to biology, medicine and agriculture; economics, finance and insurance; industry, defense and security; and even sports and entertainment. Today's careers are increasingly driven by excellence in Mathematics and quantitative skills. Thus, your gift to Mathematics also becomes an investment in the future of the State of Minnesota, the U.S., and the world at large.
There are many ways to give! You can contribute to the department's general fund, a named fund, or you can even create your own fund. Estate gifts allow you to create a lasting legacy; there are many ways to give which do not deplete needed income. Please contact the External Relations Officer, Emily Strand, 612-625-6798, for questions and inquiries concerning your interest in current or future giving.
